Ambrosino, Muir, Hansen & Crounse (AMHC) is one of the premier political direct mail firms in the country for Democratic candidates and causes. We have created the mail and provided strategic advice to 35 Democratic U.S. Senators, 20 Democratic Governors, and more than 50 members of the U.S. House. Our experience and record of success is unmatched among Democratic mail firms and it’s been built in the highest-profile, toughest and most challenging races across the country.
In 2016, our firm created the mail for the successful
re-election of Governor
Jay Inslee (WA) and for the victory by Governor Jim Justice (WV) in a state where Clinton got 28% of the vote, as well as for Governor John Carney (DE) and for the IE effort to re-elect Governor Steve Bullock (MT). We also worked for gubernatorial candidate Chris Koster in Missouri.
Our past gubernatorial successes have included Governors Tomblin and Manchin in West Virginia, Governor Gregoire in Washington, and Governors O’Malley (MD), Schweitzer (MT) and (now U.S. Senator) Shaheen in New Hampshire.
We created 45 distinct pieces of mail and were intimately involved in all strategic decision making – especially including critical efforts at identifying and persuading Hispanic voters and Early Vote turnout – that helped Catherine Cortez Masto become the first elected Latina in the U.S. Senate, one of only four new Democratic Senators and one of only two Democratic Senate victories in swing states in 2016.
Our firm also created the mail for the successful re-election
of U.S. Senator
Patty Murray in Washington State, and for the surprising victory of newcomer
Jacky Rosen in Nevada’s 3rd District, a seat held previously by a Republican and one of only six congressional seats that switched from Republican to Democratic hands nationally.
We also created the mail for Congressman Anthony Brown (MD-4) in his maiden victory for a majority-minority congressional district just across the District of Columbia line in Prince George’s County, Maryland, as well as numerous other congressional victories in competitive districts, including Suzan DelBene (WA-1),
Scott Peters (CA-52) and Carol Shea-Porter (NH-1).
We created the mail for victorious U.S. Senator Jeanne
Shaheen in New Hampshire and for Brad Ashford in
Nebraska, one of only three Democrats to defeat Republican
congressional incumbents in the country, as well as for the
successful re-election of Arizona Congresswoman Kyrsten
Sinema, one of the top Republican targets in 2014.
In 2012, while creating the mail in vital swing states to help
re-elect President Obama, we also served as mail consultant for
four crucial and surprising U.S. Senate victories for Democrats
in red states — Claire
McCaskill (MO), Joe
Donnelly (IN), Heidi
Heitkamp (ND) and Jon
Tester (MT). We also helped re-elect Senators Chris
Murphy (CT), Maria
Cantwell (WA) and Tom
Carper (DE) as well as newly elected Governor
Jay Inslee (WA), and won several highly targeted congressional races including
Scott Peters (CA), Suzan DelBene (WA), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), Ron Barber (AZ) and Joseph Kennedy III (MA).
We helped maintain Democratic control of the U.S. Senate in the
face of a national Republican tidal wave, creating more than 5.3
million pieces of mail for
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in what Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post called the "Best Campaign of the 2010 Election" and Real Clear Politics labeled the biggest upset of 2010.
Similarly, we helped U.S. Senator Patty Murray win re-election in Washington and helped Joe Manchin capture a U.S. Senate seat in the red state of West Virginia, in two of the highest profile U.S. Senate races in the country.
We also helped elect Governors Martin O'Malley (MD) and John Lynch (NH) and seven members of the U.S. House.
We created the mail for President Barack Obama in the western region of the country and won 20 of our 24 races, including 5 U.S. Senators, 4 Governors and 8 members of the U.S. House.
